When I first began this journey down the rabbit hole of enlightenment, the vast majority of people I was learning from were American (or Canadian). Most of them were middle aged or older. Whilst I didn’t have an issue with this (and age means nothing to me, even more so 18 months into this journey) during those first 6 months or so, I was in a constant battle to keep faith in what I was learning.
When you are a young, mixed-race male from a working-class family in England, with no prior experience or belief in anything spiritual, it’s kind of difficult to instantly buy into things like the law of attraction or anything that can’t be experienced with the 5 senses. So it helps at least in the beginning, to have one or two people who you can relate more easily to. Ralph Smart helped enormously with that, but it was another guy who REALLY resonated with me more than anyone else; ex-con, football hooligan and drug addict, turned yoga and transformational coach, Brett Moran!
The second of my regular video updates on how things are going as I aim to create my dream life using the law of attraction and other methods of self development. This week, I’ve come right back to Earth with a big fecking BANG!!
The first in a weekly series of video updates where I talk about what’s going on in my life as I attempt to create the life of my dreams using the law of attraction and other related self development techniques. This week, I’m as a high as a crack smoking giraffe on a bungee jump!!
For the past year, I have been regularly visualising to materialise. But I don’t think it’s till recently that I have truly understood what I need to do. That it’s the HEART that is the key to everything. I also never had 100% faith in the law of attraction. I always had a nagging doubt. But now, I am 100% certain it’s real. That’s partly because I’ve seen it in action for myself, bringing me people and circumstances which are changing my life. But also, I’ve learned a few new things which have helped cement it in place. So now, my old visualisations seem, well, a bit tame to be honest! I have no doubt whatsoever that those dreams will come true. That’s because now, they aren’t big enough for me.
OK it’s time to finally come clean! I’ve been hiding the truth from you. Being a bit coy with what’s going on in my life. You see, until recently, there was still a part of me that was scared. Worried that all the good things which had started to manifest in my life, were going to be whipped away from me, like a tablecloth in a magician’s trick.
I started to get uncomfortable, panicky feelings that my future was out of my control and that one change of heart from one individual could bring my hopes crashing to the bottom of a canyon. Because of this, I haven’t dared write about the specifics of what is happening in my life. I also risked feeling like a complete fool if I told you all this exciting news only to have to report that none of it was actually happening. But I’ve had a paradigm shift lately.
This is the man who I was totally obsessed with almost every day for an entire YEAR. I was enthralled by the wisdom spewed forth from this charismatic young Brit. Before, I had always thought YouTube was just full of clips of cats on skateboards, music videos and immature humour for teens. I had no idea it was a treasure trove of audio books, useful how-to videos and most fascinatingly, vlogs. Everyday people sharing their knowledge.
I have mentioned a few times a new friend who has come into my life since I began blogging. The circumstances surrounding how she suddenly appeared and who she is, left me in very little doubt that we were drawn together through the law of attraction. In fact, I would say she is a major reason why I now believe in it 100%. For a while now, I had asked the universe to send me someone who I could talk to about what I’d been going through the past 18 months. Someone who understood this pathway, was either going through the same spiritual enlightenment or was already experienced in this way of living. But I hadn’t met anyone who really understood what I was going through. Then, just a few weeks into blogging, I received a direct message on Twitter from a girl I recognised very well indeed…………..
The Secret often gets a bad rap these days. It seems to be fashionable to say that it doesn’t go into enough details about the law of attraction and that this gives the impression that all you have to do is ask for something, do a few visualisations and you will get whatever you want. So I thought I’d read it and see if that was the case!
Still don’t believe in all this law of attraction, woo-woo garbage? Then maybe these geezers will persuade you! Some of the greatest and most famous people in history, spanning a period of around 4,000 years. Artists, politicians, businessmen, writers, sportsmen, singers, poets, scientists, leaders, psychologists and philosophers all with vastly differing talents but with the exact same message; there is a higher power that responds to our thoughts. If we use that power correctly, by thinking positively, we can create the life that we desire – whatever that may be. They understood that our internal thoughts, emotions, beliefs, mindset, create our external reality.
Here’s what you need to understand about getting what you want using the law of attraction. It’s not about whether it MIGHT happen. It’s not about whether it COULD happen. It’s not even about whether it WILL happen. You have to act as though it HAS happened! The only way to do this is to FAKE it. Remember; your subconscious mind (which controls 95-99% of what you do) can’t distinguish between a lie and the truth. It’s totally unbiased – it takes everything as fact. So when you focus on debt and illness and worry, that’s reinforcing this reality to your subconscious mind, whether you have those problems or not. When you visualise yourself surrounded by abundance, that’s what your subconscious sees as the NOW, real-time, the truth.
